Very good food - Not perfect considering the price!

I ate there with my family in early June 2015. I had the Jamaican whole snapper. The presentation was impressive. This was a whole fish scored and fried. It was covered with an avocado and pepper mixture. The meat was good when you dug down closer to the bone. But most of the meat was overdone and... read more

My daughter highly recommended this restaurant to me. Went for dinner today and was very disappointed. Ordered Lobster, Lobster and when it was brought to me lobster was raw.

We went to Catch to celebrate my birthday, It was WONDERFUL! Chef is most deservedly highly regarded. Everything on the menu is somewhat unusual, uniquely chosen, and well prepared. We ordered the scallops special with clams and the highly praised lump crab. Both were truly delicious. We will definitely go back!

Freshest of ingredients prepared with flair are the norm. We've eaten dinner here 4-5 times (and I've also eaten lunch here a few times) and enjoyed every meal. My husband's only complaint (sometimes) is the portion size.

We went for my boyfriend's birthday and enjoyed every bite. He doesn't normally have an open pallet but we both tried something new and it was delicious. The presentation was like something from a postcard. The service was also great. Definitely going back.

I wasn't overwhelmed. The service was excellent, the ambience was typical of small foodie joints (candles, small tables close together), and the menu had good variety. But other than the phenomenal (worth the trip) spicy shrimp appetizer, food was just fair. Crab cakes were good quality crab, but not very flavorful. Not objectionable at all...but nothing that made me sigh... More

My fiance and I had dinner at Catch on our engagement day. I was so happy I showed my ring to the server. Not only he shared our happiness but he made sure we had an unforgettable experience by staying attentive, respectful and sweet. It was a very busy night and we finished our dinner slightly later than the closing... More

Great food. I got the ribs and shrimp (which they grilled for me instead of fried, at my request) and my husband had shrimp and grits. Good-sized portions. My husband finished his, but was full, and I didn't eat all of mine. Friendly staff. Not in a prominent location, but the food is great! Planning to return while we are... More
